I hate to be cynical, but I can’t understand why the Biden administration won’t name the alleged mastermind they claimed to have killed. The Pentagon is withholding the alleged terrorist’s name. But, why? If he was an ISIS terrorist, I’m sure they already know he is dead. Yesterday in one of my columns, I wondered how they could have found where the planner was since Biden had already pulled the CIA out of the country. And now, with this, I am more curious than ever.
Pentagon will not release names of the 2 ‘high-profile’ ISIS planners killed in single U.S. drone strike: Kirby

Up to this point, the president and the Pentagon have not been right about a single thing. In fact, the Pentagon has downplayed the capabilities of the Taliban from the beginning right up until they captured Kabul. I just don’t feel confident about anything they tell us. Remember, these are the geniuses who closed Bagram airbase before trying to evacuate the Americans and our Afghan partners. Trust is something you earn from your deeds, not given to you because of your rank.
Joe Biden has lied to us, claiming that our allies have not lost faith in this country because of this fiasco of his own making. This administration has not been honest with our allies or with us and there is no reason to trust anything they tell us. Did they stage a false flag attack to mollify people over the death of our soldiers. I hope not. I hope they did exactly what they say they did. But, I have been lied to so much over the past two weeks that I am not willing to simply take their word for anything.
Suddenly, BOOM, it had a positive story that just happens to fit the over-the-horizon narrative. Supposedly.
It’s told us nothing specific about the strike that it says it carried out — not the targets, not so much as a sketch of the intelligence that led up to the strike, not the time or location other than an entire province in Afghanistan — Nangarhar. That’s in eastern Afghanistan, so near Pakistan, so we can do some very rough math from that. But it’s still a fairly big place.
We’ve seen no video or image. And it’s refusing to name the individuals it claims have been turned into pink mist.
There might be a valid reason or two. This arrogant administration isn’t bothering to offer one, if there is one. The two most plausible reasons are that the targets weren’t really high-level, or there was no strike. Or maybe they don’t really even know who they killed.
